Mr. Dirk Stricklin
CEO of Savers Cost Plus Supermarkets the first SILENT HERO Awardee, and a Great Supporter of DCET Literacy Programs. Irving, Texas, August 18, 2005

​The SHAA (Silent Hero AZTECA Awards) highlights individuals that have been distinguished by their community service and have done a lot for the Irving, TX local community and quietly have performed altruistic functions benefiting society. Other awards are given to the persons who unconditionally contribute to our city and who have impacted the less fortunate community while continuing to enhance our City of Irving through his/her generosity and support.​

We appreciate the generosity of our SHAA sponsors

DCET  is very proud to present four Annual scholarships to outstanding students who are investing in their education. We know that education is the key to success  because it opens doors for people of all backgrounds, and it expands the human mind with knowledge. The vast amount of knowledge gained through education prepares individuals to solve problems, teach others, function at a higher level and implement transformational ideas. Without education, one’s chances for securing a good job and ascending to a higher economic and social status are often limited.
